This is the latest development in continuously improving our catering. We’re incredibly proud of this new offering, and we hope our customers enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed developing it.

Of interest, is that catering at Gatwick will be provided by Newrest. Flights at Heathrow are catered by Do&Co.

Whilst the press release mentions all long haul cabins will feature the new catering, there is a rather large caveat in it. Euro Traveller (short haul economy) passengers will still have to pay up to experience the M&S on board catering. Even on the 4+ hour sectors to Paphos.

In addition to the new catering, British Airways are in the process of refurbishing its fleet of Boeing 777 aircraft that fly out of Gatwick. These feature updated World Traveller and World Traveller Plus seats, along with updated in flight entertainment.
